UFC on FOX 3 is official.

UFC on FOX 3 is scheduled to take place at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Saturday, May 5, and will air live on FOX at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

The card will be headlined by a lightweight bout between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller.

“For our third card on FOX, we have four great fights!” UFC President Dana White said. “Nate Diaz versus Jim Miller is the five-round main event and the winner will put himself in a position to fight for the title. Both of these guys fight at an incredible pace and are coming off great wins.

Other match-ups announced for the card include Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson, Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks and Rousimar Palhares vs. Alan Belcher.

“We’ve got an amazing heavyweight fight between knockout artists Pat Barry and Lavar Johnson, as well as welterweight title contender fight between Josh Koscheck and Johny Hendricks. Johny just knocked out Koscheck’s training partner, Jon Fitch, and wants a title shot. To do it, he’s gotta get past Koscheck, who’s one of the best 170-pounders in the world. If that wasn’t enough, submission specialist Rousimar Palhares meets Alan Belcher in an exciting middleweight fight. I’m excited for fans in N.J. and N.Y. to experience the UFC live again.”
